The quarterly meeting of Lodge Ivanhoe was hold last night, and was very largely attended. Dr Lamb was unanimously reelected a surgeon of the lodge, and it was decided to adopt a reduced scale of initiation fees for members under thirty-five years of age. One new member was initiated. Bro, A. H. Shelton was appointed delegate to the Friendly Societies’ Gala Conference. The receipts (or tho evening were L 46 7s 3d. During the evening V.A. Bro. Stokes presented tho family of the late Bro. Pizey, of whom three are members of the lodge, with a P.A.’a framed diploma and a letter of condolence as follows: The officers and members cf the Ivanhoe Lodge, No. 113, U.A.0.D., deeply lament the decease of their late brother Henry F. Pizey, J.P.A., recognising that in him tho lodge has lost one of its most faithful workers, untiring in his zeal to promote tho welfare of his lodge, ever ready to promote tho cause of charity, to advance the interests of the brethren, and unremitting in his zeal for the cause of Druidism, until death with icy touch took him from the field of labor in honorable usefulness to the very end. He truly died in harness. By tho death of Bro. Plzoy the members of the Ivanhoe Lodge have Inst a warm friend, a good adviser, and a zealous offioer, who sought by example to inculcate the principles on which tho Order is based, and to spread the knowledge of them among the community. Tho officers and members feelingly tender to tho members of the bereaved family their sincere condolence and sympathy in this their hour of affliction, and counsel them to bow submissively to tho will of Him who orderoth all things wisely and well, and they express tho hope that they will ever set before them as a guide to their future lives the example presented by tho deceased of duty done as a citizen, and of his never failing love for the lodge and Order for which bo labored so earnestly and so faithfully.
Signed ou behalf of the officers and members of the Ivanhoe Lodge. July 1,1859. J. H. Davihs, A.D. T. O. Stores, V.A. Wm. Stronach, Sec,
In making the presentation, Bro. Stokes referred to the esteem in which the late Bro, Pizey was held, not only by the members of, his lodge, but by the Order generally, and to the zealous way in which he had worked for its advancement. The family might rest assured that they had the sincere sympathy of the lodge, the members of which would always be gratified to hear of their success in life.—Bro. M. Pizey replied on behalf of his brothers, who, he said, would greatly prize both gifts. Their father, in his last moments, had enjoined them to cherish tho possession of his diploma, and they certainly would do so.
